2.12: Intro to Robotics - 1

2.12 is a Mechanical Engineering elective during which students make robotic mechanisms to accomplish a given task. This year, we have to pick up radioactive waste (i.e. glowsticks) from a nuclear reactor (i.e. tank of water). Our design utilizes a two-axis rack and pinion system, which we demonstrate by creating artwork (i.e. drawing a circle and a figure eight).
